are there still important does anyone think
Yes i think so. Though you don't get much traffic from it, you will get good page rank. which in turn will help your website to be in first few pages of google.
Not strictly true.
In all fairness and if you ask anyone involved in SEO, having your site listed on DMOZ doesn't mean you are likely to get good page rank. Nor does it bear much relevance on SERPs.
I have seen websites with PR 1 being in the top 4 links of Google first page for certain keywords. Good PR and SERPs has a massive bearing on content and links and where these are placed. DMOZ I would say is still valid but nowhere near as much as it used to be. Eventually it will be phased out from having any bearing on Google PR or SERPs.
3 years before getting your website in DMOZ using a proper anchor text would get you to the first page for fairly competitve terms .. these days it is not the same but DMOZ still improtnat factor from SEO stand point
yeah it took me about 3 years to get my biz site (web design ireland) listed on dmoz.. I had given up checking and a m8 of mine noticed, and told me I was listed. I have not seen any SEO /traffic benefits fwiw, but I guess it's better to be listed than not, since it's free
